Mechanical engineering and industrial piping

Steel construction, prefabrication of skids, installation of thermal equipment, bridge crane maintenance, welding work, etc. Whether for new installations, renovation projects or maintenance, our expertise in mechanical engineering and industrial piping is one of EQUANS' core technical activities.

Serving all types of infrastructures and industries, our solutions are primarily aimed at sectors requiring piping systems and/or mechanical equipment: (petro)chemicals, refineries, the steel industry, the energy sector, the food and pharmaceutical industries, etc. Our integrated networḱ of workshops allows us to optimise processes and prefabrication, close to the production sites.


An integrated approach and unrivalled expertise

Our activities cover the design, construction and maintenance of electro-mechanical installations and systems.
We design, (pre-)fabricate and install industrial piping and mechanical equipment (constructions and installations).

For each type of industry or infrastructure, we have specialised teams who know the specific constraints and expectations of the sector. Our extensive experience in the construction and maintenance of conventional, nuclear, CHP and combined cycle power plants also explains our strong presence in the energy segment.

All our operations comply with the Iso 9001 and VCA-P industrial norms and standards.

In mechanical and electromechanical engineering

Our teams carry out a wide range of services, from the replacement of a lock gate to the alignment of a pump and the maintenance of bridge cranes.

We work alongside our customers, both in their new projects and in the organisation of “shutdowns” or maintenance of their production facilities.

As these activities are potentially dangerous, we always prioritise safety in order to provide our customers with a safe installation, in the shortest possible time.
